It's 30x because of the Assassin's blade perk on the sneak tree which makes it 15x. Then "double damage sneak attacks with one-handed weapons" on my gloves. Helps that the dagger is legendary as well. But yeah, The game decided it still had to play the lift off and crash animation even though the thing was already dead lol.

I watched Beowulf (the 2007 CGI) and in my head replaced the word Beowulf with Dovahkiin.
So every time someones says Beowulf, they are really saying Dovahkiin.

It's like Skyrim The Movie.

A perfectly min/maxed character for real gameplay would have 672 armor (the cap), 99% magic resist (the cap), and 536 damage on a one-hander, after that stack full hp, stamina is worthless since you one-shot everything with the default 100 stamina. Here's a guide in-case you're interested.


Also, for all the haters, Masters is easy even with bad gear. I beat the final boss with a 40 damage dagger quite easily tongue.gif

Edit: Just wanted to clarify, i used the 50% magic damage reduction guardian stone before the boss, used only half my armor (~400 armor rating), had around 550 hp from levels, used a 40% fire resist potion that i found, and a 40 damage dagger. I had to use three healing potions. Notice i'm not doing anything elaborate and my gear is easily obtainable. Just did this for the lolz because this game is easy even on masters.

That's why I put minmaxing in quotes, lol. The stuff you can really do is crazy.

I finally got around to "minmaxing" my character after beating the game, I went from 396 armor rating to 981, my dagger went from 69 damage to 128 + 50, my axe went from 85 + 10 to 389 + 56, and I get a whole bunch of health and +% blocking from enchantments. I have a feeling it's going to get a whole lot easier.

Try playing without the best equipment and see how easy it is then.

Lol, try reading the part you DIDN'T bold. rolleyes.gifkookoo.giflachen.gif

I've already beaten the game with sub-par equipment, it was really easy. Now I can fight 8 elder dragons at once and beat them, and 3 ancient dragons, and I'm not even close to having the best enchantments, I just threw on whatever I had.

Do you realize the fact that your statement goes against one of the main points of any RPG? lachen.gif
Why should someone limit themselves? I don't want to be forced to put imaginary advancement restrictions on my character - it's the game's job to enforce the rules and adapt the gameplay experience to them.

Anyone found any good dead thralls to use? I'm using that unkillable Orchendor dude from peryite's quest
post #2207 of 12885

wondering guys..any tips on leveling enchanting?

the grind is going to be so dang expensive if i have to buy and fill a petty soul gem for every single wolf and iron dagger i want to enchant...

have a good set of gear but now want to fix it up with enchanted jewelry..

 

but what i enchant is total crap.

ex:   found gauntlets of major grip/weilding giving me 25% extra damage with 2 handed weapons

then i go to enchant it onto a ring and it says 1%... i change out the gem to a grand and now it says 5%   why so low?  why the hell did i find a 25% and i cant make one?

 

 

otherwise, having great time with the game. lvl18, orcish armor with a giant hammer, still tough at times but im able to kill most without trouble...mini-bosses give issues though.

You only learn the type of the enchantment. The bonus depends on your enchanting level, the quality of the soul and your perks. Don't worry about money; it has only 3 uses in this game:buying 5 skill-ups every level, buying/decorating houses and buying alchemy/enchanting/smithing ingredients for grinding. None of those are particularly expensive, so splurge as much as you want.

Get Azura's Star (a refillable soul gem) and find or enchant a weapon with Soul Trap, then just re-fill the weapon with every kill you get. You get XP for refilling weapons. Also find silver/gold/iron mines, get the Transmute Metal spell (turns iron ore into silver ore, and silver ore into gold), and make a lot of rings (you get two per ingot so it's the most efficient), and enchant it all with random small gems you find and sell it all. Easy money and enchanting levels.

I'm sure everyone has seen the performance review Tom's did on Skyrim. Has anyone else seen CPU scaling like this on any game before? I can't say I've seen every other game benchmark out there, but I've seen plenty and nothing like this.
